I’m looking for a preferably used OEM blue tank cover to fit my 2019 700R.

I know a number of previous years will work as well.

I would be willing to buy it out right or do a trade plus cash deal for my black one.

Check oem Partzilla or Motosport.
Tank covers and grills in multiple colors are available, it's fenders that have been hard to come by.
You can get a new oem blue tank cover for around $20 plus shipping.

All the tank covers(and rear fenders)are the same 2006-2021

Thanks a lot, man! Right before I checked here to see you mention Motosport, I bought one off of a guy on eBay for $100. I just bought the same blue OEM top cover for $34 shipped from Moto.

What’s interesting is that Partzilla sells this part for $130+shipping? There are other plastic parts that have a significant price difference depending on the site.

Why is this? I mean…where talking a 60%+ price difference between a few sites on some parts?

Just wanted to clarify that the 06-12 tank covers are not the same as the 13-21 models.

Are you sure you ordered the cover ending in -30?

Looking at Motosport, it lists the blue cover for $143.62, so Partzilla is actually cheaper.

For some unknown reason, the blue cover is 6X more expensive than most any other color, which sell for about $20 for white up to $63 for red. All other colors are around the $25-$30 range.

That's strange on the cover, as I have bought 3, and all listed as 06-21...but I don't doubt Chimbazoid, as he's done All the part number research.

Here you can see the main differences between the 06-12 and the 13-21 covers.

The 06-12 are flat on the end that the hood attaches, where the 13-21 have the extended sections at the front to meet up with the shape of the hood.

So I went ahead and purchased the one from Motosport last night. I called them up today and they confirmed that it is the blue one.

I will update once I receive it.

I see what you’re talking about with the differences. I bet you are correct that the one I ordered from Motosport is the 06-12 one.

I have a 2020
I bought all the oem fenders in black from Partzilla.
I have 2 other tank covers for it too, and they do not have the extensions towards the front, yet they fit fine(I do have the '13+ nose, hood, and front fenders also).
It seems like either tank cover will fit either group of years.
